Recipe: Sourdough Cheese Bun


I got the recipe for the bun from my sourdough teacher, Shaumiati Evma. The original recipe uses full white flour. As I try to reduce consuming too much white flour, I mixed the recipe 50:50 between white flour and whole wheat flour. I also used honey instead of granulated sugar. Just try to be more healthier 😅

Bun Ingredients:

  • 80 gr sourdough starter
  • 80 gr cold milk
  • 120 gr white bread flour (you can use all 240 gr if you do not want to use whole wheat flour)
  • 120 gr whole wheat flour
  • 1 large egg (55 gr)
  • 4 gr of salt
  • 30 gr honey
  • 25 gr unsalted butter
  • 5 gr cheese cube
  • Cheese for topping


  1. Prepare the sourdough starter one night before. Make sure the starter is active and bubly (pass the floating test)
  2. In a bowl, mix sourdough starter with milk, egg, flour, sugar and salt together until incorporated.
  3. Add butter, mix well, rest for 30 minutes.
  4. Do stretch and fold and repeat every 30 minutes. Do until the dough is quite smooth. I did 6-7 times.
  5. Let the dough rest in the fridge for at least 3 hours. I usually left it overnight.
  6. Take out the dough from the fridge and do preshaping. Let it rest for 20 minutes.
  7. If the dough is rising well, you will get about 500 gr dough. Cut the dough into 12 pieces.
  8. Take one dough, flatten a bit, put a cheese cube in the middle.
  9. Stretch every corner and fold it over the butter. Do final shaping to make a circle shape. Do the same to the rest of the dough.
  10. Let it rise until doubled. Mine took 8-9 hours.
  11. Preheat the oven at 180 degree Celcius.
  12. Bake for 20-25 minutes. 
  13. Enjoy!
